To find your 401k maximum contribution for 2010 and more see
To make the most of your 401K contributions, you need to know first how much you can contribute. Usually that is based on a vesting schedule. See your employer about when you “vest”. 401K contributions are also limited. You can contribute a certain amount based on a percentage of salary. The same is true of any matching contributions. They are based on a percentage of salary. For example, an employer may match each dollar you contribute to your 401k plan up to 3% of your salary.
